Violence in Children's Programmes on British Television.
Gunter, Barrie; Harrison, Jackie
Children & Society, v11 n3 p143-56 Sep 1997
Studied violence on children's television in Britain. Found 39% of children's programs examined contained violence, primarily involving shootings and physical assault committed for negative purposes and rarely followed by painful consequences. The fast pace of such programs is also a significant factor. Results pose wider implications for those involved with caring for children. (Author/SD)
